About Me

I specialize in military and first responder families and couples. As a veteran and military spouse myself, I have unique insight and perspective on the challenges and stressors that they face. When I was in the Marines, I saw firsthand the damage that day-to-day military life and deployments wrought. I developed a passion for mental health during this time. When I left the Marines, I chose to continue to serve my country by serving my brothers and sisters in arms. For me, helping those with traumatic experience is not just a job, it is a vocation. I am a perpetual student of trauma, constantly staying abreast of the latest research and treatments to provide the best possible options and outcomes for my clients. I am proficient with clients experiencing PTSD and dissociative identity disorder.
